Advanced Warfare Supports Dedicated Servers, Companion App Confirmed for Day Zero
Michael Condrey of Sledgehammer Games has announced today that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will support dedicated servers.
He confirmed it in an interview on Stevivor but failed to mention exactly what platforms and providers will be running the said servers.
“Yes, we will be supporting dedicated servers and there will be announcements soon on which providers and platforms,” he said when asked about it. “I can’t answer just yet, but you can let your community know that it’s coming.”
Back in August, he stated that Sledgehammer would be focusing on e-sports with great zeal by bringing in ranked playlists and a broadcaster mode. Most important, the PC community will get LAN Lobbies. However, Condrey still has not cleared whether those will be in the shape of local and offline play.
In related news, Activision has announced that the companion app for the game will launch on November 3 and the first Clan War shall commence from November 26. The app will launch alongside Day Zero, giving owners of the special edition a whole 24 hours before the rest of the world joins in.
According to the publisher, the companion app for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been improved vastly and will feature “War Room,” a starting point for clan leaders from where they can browse through activity, top contributors, previous and current clan wars and more.
The app will be available on iOS, Android, Windows and Kindle devices.
